A bottle of 2018 Xinomavro for us this evening, to accompany a Magret de Canard:
I can see why this wine generates so much enthusiasm in this community! It’s utterly lovely – fresh, perfumed and light, but with real substance and quite haunting flavours of wild berries, sour cherries and dried herbs.
A million miles from Thymiopoulos’s Xinomavro bottling for M&S, which I had a while ago and found rather underwhelming. This, by contrast, is the very definition of value for money; I absolutely love it! The husband, on the other hand, is approaching cautiously; he found this a little too sour at first, but is growing to appreciate the complexity for the price with every sip. No reasons to divorce just yet, then.
What are you drinking this midweek?
